Not to answer the whole question specifically, not a Vail guy or anything, but the reason for those hourly wages is becuz waiters in most states get paid significantly below minimum wage (by $3-5/hr), and generally get paychecks for -$0-.
The money you make as a waiter in vail is going to go across a huge range of restaurants, price points, whether you work at night, etc. You'll need every advantage.
